The Humber Journal of Paralegal Access to Justice critically examines the scope of paralegal practice and the role of paralegals in advancing access to justice.
Editor-in-Chief: Bernie Aron
The Humber Journal of Paralegal Access to Justice provides a voice for licensed paralegals and paralegal educators in critically examining the scope of paralegal practice and the role of paralegals in advancing access to justice. The Journal provides an opportunity to promote developments that enhance affordable legal representation for previously self-represented litigants and, at the same time, question governmental initiatives that might undermine the mantra of access to justice. Through in-depth articles, practice guidance, legislative updates, and case comments the user gains practical insight into the current and future trends in this emerging profession. The Journal also offers the opportunity to explore less known areas of practice available for licensed paralegals in order to activate the full capability of paralegals in enhancing access to justice.
